Gary is a wonderfully original painter. He works primarily on canvas with acrylics and likes to use areas of block colour. Drawn to geometric shapes, he translates what he sees into a rich fabric of pattern. You can see this in his NZ landscape series.
Since the earthquakes, Gary has kept an eye on the Christchurch rebuild and has extensive knowledge of everything that is happening in the city and all the new buildings. He works primarily from his memory.
